On a morning when I need to get out the door to finish up some errands, so I can get the Christmas Things in the mail to the kids – your brain goes blank for a blog post, amirite?

So, this morning my things scattered!

Thing One:

If you have not read Elena Ferrante’s Neapolitan novels (they are on my list to read!!) and you have not seen the brilliant adaption on HBO (you should… it is so lovely!) Perhaps you will love the Ferrante-inspired street art in Naples! I love how little the apartment buildings have changed. May we all have a Biblioteca Andreoli in our neighborhoods!

Thing Two:

I love the Man Booker long and short lists! And, Literary Hub posted an excerpt from this year’s winner, Milkman by Anna Burns. (I am on the wait list to read this, but I am intrigued!!)

Thing Three:

The New Yorker’s Dan Chiasson published “The Poetry I was Grateful for in 2018” and still, my list grows!

May your Thursday be full of good things! Want to see more lists? Head on over to Carole’s!
